Tom McLoughlin who would later direct Friday the 13th Part 6 Jason Lives crafts this obscured Horror film that deserves to be rediscovered. One Dark Night is the type of horror film that uses simple elements to create a tense atmosphere, which in turn helps raise the chill factor in the viewer. The cast do a fine job with the material, and it makes for an entertaining horror viewing. Some aspects of the film could have been improved on, but overall, this is a pleasant treat for genre fans that enjoy obscured horror titles. Anyone looking for effective horror will most likely enjoy One Dark Night, and though it could have been a far better film, but for what we have here, this is a very good film that manages to be entertaining and engaging despite its flaws. What this film does very well is it relies on atmosphere, which in my opinion adds so much to the experience of being terrified. Of course there better films in the genre, but One Dark Night is a genre gem that deserves to be rediscovered. If you want a terrific atmospheric horror film that boasts some good visuals and effective chills, look no further than One Dark Night. Although director Tom McLoughlin would later helm the sixth entry in the Friday the 13th franchise, which would be one of the strongest in that series, I believe that this film is his finest directorial effort. This is a very good supernatural effort that proves that you need a few basic elements to create a memorable horror yarn. This one is not perfect, but it is far better than most genre films. Live I've said before, films like this should be rediscovered and rightfully so because they are interesting in its ideas and their highly engaging in the process.
